This hotel is literally 2 minutes from the train station - we stayed in a twin room as there were no doubles available but it was acceptable. Cosy and clean the rooms had everything we needed. There was a fridge in the room, however ours wasn't working - we weren't too bothered by this as we only stayed one night and didn't need to chill anything.
The staff were friendly and helpful even though not too many of them spoke much English. Some spoke German which was helpful. Breakfast was included and for a small hotel the spread was delicious! Croissants and Pannettone, various breads, cereal, fruit salad, yoghurt, meat, cheese, crackers, muesli and fruit! Coffee, tea and juice were also available. For an overnight stay this hotel ticks all the right boxes.
